Octavia Butler’s ‘Wild Seed’ To Be Developed For TV By Viola Davis And Nnedi Okorafor

The face of Popular TV Series, Viola Davis is rapidly becoming more of a goddess. With her newest project with Comic Writer queen Nnedi Okorafor, the relevance of powerful women in pop culture continues to Grow!

The HTGAWM star is developing an adaptation of Octavia Butler’s Wild Seed, which would be the first installment in her Patternist sci-fi series. In production with Amazon for a streaming distribution, the project will be written by author Nnedi Okorafor and Rafiki filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu.

According to Deadline, the love-hate story follows two African immortals as they journey through eras like pre-Colonial West Africa to the present and “far, far future.”

Wild Seed is a book that shifted my life. It is as epic, as game-changing, as moving and brilliant as any science fiction novel ever written. Julius and I are proud to have this masterpiece in our hands. It fullfills our promise and legacy to be disrupters. Octavia Butler was a visionary and we look forward to honoring the scope of her work and sharing it with the world,” said Davis.
